There's a lot of history in Shreveport, isn't there?

One thing I love about Louisiana is that it is filled with history. Recently I took a trip to Barcelona and waked streets and went into buildings that are centuries old. It got me thinking about the history we have right here in Shreveport-Bossier.

Shreveport and Bossier were both founded in the 1800s, according to the Greater Shreveport Chamber of Commerce. Shreveport was founded in 1836 and became Shreve Town in 1839. It was incorporated into a city in 1871. Its sister city, Bossier City, was founded in 1884 and incorporated in 1907.

This got me wondering about the historic places that you can find in our area. Louisiana Travel has a list of several locations in Shreveport that have been recognized as Historic Districts and Sites. Here's what I found...
